The colours of the Milan stadium during the European Cup final have been the subject of much debate, with the supporters of the San Siro claiming that the colours of their club have been a touch over-represented in recent years.
This week, however, it has emerged that the Italian coach actually got the green-and-white aesthetic from a famous artist, Giacomo Caravaggio.
As we have seen, Caraviggio’s works are all-white, with a large white circle in the centre, which stands for the city.
As the name of the work suggests, the circle has the same meaning as in the Italian language, the city’s motto.
It is therefore an homage to the city of Milan, and is also the colour of Milan itself.
According to the Milanese newspaper, La Stampa, the colours were chosen because it was considered the city was a symbol of innocence and innocence’s innocence.
But the idea that the colour is derived from the city has never been established, and the colours themselves have been shown to have a darker shade than the blue of the rest of the stadium.
The colours have been criticised by fans who claim that they are too similar to the colours used by Italian football club Lazio, which are blue and white.
However, this is only a minor issue for Milan fans, as they would still get a blue shirt in the colours they choose.
